Film screening

Screening: The Spirit of Places by Catherine Martin


In 1970, Hungarian-Québécois photographer Gabor Szilasi set out for the Charlevoix region of Québec to photograph the last vestiges of a disappearing rural world. Thirty-five years later, filmmaker Catherine Martin went back to revisit the lanscape, places and people he photographed. L’esprit des lieux retraces Szilasi’s photographic journey, taking stock of what remains and what has disappeared.

Screening in French, with English subtitles.
Presented in association with the exhibition Gabor Szilasi: The Art World in Montreal, 1960-1980.
